The other organisations we partner with include:

Bloodwood Tree Association Inc is an Aboriginal organisation based in South Hedland providing services and support for people who might be affected by homelessness, alcohol and other drug use, unemployment or other social issues.  

Since 2022, MinRes has partnered with Bloodwood Tree to support their Mini Mart Delivery Service which provides grocery pick up and drop off to people in Port and South Hedland, as well as a fortnightly service to Yandeyarra.  

The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men – equipping them to participate more meaningfully in society.  

In 2000, Clontarf commenced as a single academy catering for 25 students and operated by two staff members including founder and current CEO Gerard Neesham.  

More than 20 years on, Clontarf operates 148 academies across WA, NT, QLD, NSW, VIC and SA, supporting more than 11,500 participants and employing over 560 dedicated staff.  

MinRes and Clontarf formalised a partnership in 2023, which enables MinRes to build relationships with participants in high school with the goal of establishing employment pathways into MinRes.  

Ear Science Institute Australia was established in 2001 to improve the lives of people with ear and hearing disorders through patient-driven research, education and treatment.  

As an international centre of excellence, Ear Science brings together a multi-disciplinary team of the brightest minds from across the globe, all working to develop effective treatment for ear and hearing disorders.  

MinRes and Ear Science joined forces in December 2022 to expand the Lions Healthy Hearing Outback program in Newman, Jigalong, Punmu, Parnngurr and Kunawarritji.  

Under the new partnership, Ear Science has employed an Ear Health Coordinator to work with the local Aboriginal medical service and community, delivering an integrated service model combining telehealth with on-the-ground logistical support for patients who need treatment.  

In 2024, MinRes announced a landmark new partnership with Foodbank WA providing $450,000 over three years to fund its ‘nom! Schools’ nutritional education program.

This program, which complements Foodbank WA’s popular School Breakfast Program, sees qualified nutritionists visit schools to host fun and engaging sessions for kids and parents, including cooking classes and eating together.

In 2024, the ‘nom!’ team will visit dozens of schools in vulnerable communities across WA – including throughout the Pilbara.

MinRes is an inaugural donor to the Foundation for the WA Museum’s International Exhibition Fund, supporting the WA Museum Boola Bardip to bring world-class exhibitions and programs to WA.

This includes the landmark Dinosaurs of Patagonia exhibition, which was attended by more than 114,000 visitors in 2022.

MinRes recognises museums play a key role in educating people about our past, our present and what’s happening in the world around us.

The Goldfields Aboriginal Business Chamber (GABC) is an Aboriginal-led incorporated association comprised of Aboriginal business owners that are based in and represent the Goldfields region.  

The GABC is a community initiative highlighting the strength of local Aboriginal entities and business owners and supports economic participation of local Aboriginal businesses.  

MinRes came on board as principal partner of the GABC in 2022, with our funding helping to develop a functioning, professional office environment and employ a full-time Project Officer to support members and strengthen local community connections.  

MinRes is a long-term supporter of the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research, a leading WA medical research centre dedicated to tackling some of the world’s biggest health issues.

In 2022, MinRes extended its partnership for a further three years, taking its total contribution to cardiovascular research at the Harry Perkins Institute to $2.25 million.

In particular, MinRes’ funding supports Dr Elena de Juan Pardo in developing 3D printed heart valves. Cardiovascular disease affects millions of people worldwide, including around one in eight older Australians.

The 3D-printed heart valves that Dr Juan Pardo has developed do not require invasive surgery, replicate the body’s cells and will never need replacing. In a recent milestone, this technology is set to be commercialised in Australia to help millions of people globally.

Established in 1961, the Kwinana Knights Football Club brings together people who love footy. The Knights have a proud history of developing great players, creating lifelong friendships and building a positive community for people from all walks of life.  

MinRes joined the Kwinana Knights as sponsor to support the club’s participation in the 2024, 2025 and 2026 Perth Football League seasons.  

Lifeline is a 24-hour suicide prevention provider that is available to all Australians experiencing a personal crisis. MinRes is proud to be one of Lifeline WA’s largest corporate strategic partners and, in December 2023, announced a landmark renewal of this longstanding partnership.

Under this arrangement, MinRes is proud to contribute $600,000 to Lifeline WA over three years – the majority of which will fund the training of 300 volunteer Digital Crisis Supporters.

Digital Crisis Supporters are the latest innovation in Lifeline’s service model. These dedicated volunteers are connecting with an entirely new generation of help-seekers over text and SMS, ensuring help is available to anyone, anywhere, anytime. As demand for mental health services continues to rise, this army of additional volunteers will help Lifeline WA meet this growing need.

MinRes’ partnership with Lifeline WA is deeply entrenched on its sites, with the 13 11 14 crisis support number emblazoned on its NextGen 2 crusher at the Mount Whaleback iron ore mine, on a crane in the Pilbara and on a range of PPE shirts.

These serve as important reminders for those working on or visiting sites to talk openly about mental health and seek help when they need it. At MinRes, mental health is considered to be just as important as physical health.

MinRes is the founding partner of the McGovern Foundation’s Wanderer Program, which helps young people complete 50 hours of supervised driving needed to obtain their P plates.

Not having access to a vehicle or the means to pay for driving lessons can make it near impossible for young people to get their provisional driver’s licence. To tackle this, trained driver mentors work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and disadvantaged youth to help them access safe vehicles, obtain their learner’s permit and complete the required hours.

The program also operates outside of the Perth-metro area in Northam, Narrogin, Katanning and Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

In 2024, the program celebrated a remarkable milestone – helping 300 participants get their P plates, with 76% of graduates going on to secure a job.

In partnership with Curtin University, MinRes’ contribution to the Moorditj Yorga Scholarship program funds scholarships to support mature-aged Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to enter and succeed at Curtin University so they can be strong leaders and role models.  

‘Moorditj Yorga,’ meaning ‘strong woman’ in the Noongar language of WA’s South West, captures the intention of the scholarships: women are the bedrock of any community, particularly those that have long faced social and economic inequity.  

MinRes is the masthead sponsor of the National Indigenous Times’  (NIT) lifestyle section – Style Up.

In November 2022, the 100 per cent Indigenous-owned newspaper expanded nationwide and now includes a dedicated lifestyle lift out showcasing and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ fashion, art, design, film, literature, theatre and events.

MinRes is proud to provide financial and in-kind support to help NIT create a national platform for First Nations creatives to share their talents and grow their business. 

In 2007, the Department of Environment and Heritage (South Australia) published the National Plan for Malleefowl  to secure existing malleefowl populations. The National Malleefowl Recovery Group (NMRG) was formed with the primary responsibility of implementing the plan’s objectives.  

In 2017, the Western Australian branch of the NMRG was formed to raise awareness of malleefowl decline in our state, particularly the Yilgarn region, and promote community involvement in citizen science conservation efforts.  

MinRes and the NMRG have partnered to develop and implement research projects aiming to better understand the ecology of malleefowl in the Yilgarn. The three-year commitment will measure the effectiveness of habitat restoration, with the goal of rehabilitating habitats capable of supporting the species.  

The North Pilbara Football League has been coordinating Australian rules football games in the Pilbara since 1977. The League supports six clubs across the region – the Dampier Sharks, Karratha Falcons, Karratha Kats, Port Hedland Rovers, South Hedland Swans and Wickham Wolves – with three teams per club: Women’s, Reserves and League.  

MinRes joined as the League’s major sponsor in 2022, providing vital funding to help deliver the 2022, 2023 and 2024 seasons and support football clubs across the region.  

The Onslow Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI) exists to promote the interests of its members in the business community and provide services that generate positive outcomes for commercial and professional organisations.  

In September 2023, MinRes and the OCCI formed a new three-year partnership to boost capacity in delivering services to support the Onslow business community.  

Funding will bolster the current efforts and existing services of the organisation, including continuing the Onslow Hub and redeveloping Onslow Connect – a directory of businesses and organisations servicing the town of Onslow.  

Each year the Rockingham Kwinana Chamber of Commerce (RKCC) holds the RKCC Regional Business Awards, paying tribute to businesses working, trading and buying local to the Rockingham-Kwinana region.  

The event celebrates local business success, highlights local business efforts and recognises performance and innovative achievements throughout the year.  

In 2022, MinRes and the RKCC began a five-year partnership, with MinRes providing funding to support the annual awards night.  

MinRes is proud to be a long-term partner of Ronald McDonald House Charities WA, which helps sick kids and their families stay together and close to the medical care they need in Perth.

For almost eight years, MinRes has employed two chefs who cook dinner for families staying in the Nedlands House and Perth Children’s Hospital House every night of the year. In the past 12 months alone, they prepared more than 30,000 meals.

Chefs Tommy and Zi also support the ‘Home for Dinner’ volunteering program, which invites groups from the community to help prepare the evening meal.

MinRes is proud to partner with Ruah Community Services in support of its landmark Ruah Centre for Women and Children – a new safe haven for those experiencing family and domestic violence.

Over three years, MinRes will commit $1.5 million to fund five Koorta Guides at the facility in central Perth.

‘Koorta’ is the Noongar word for ‘trusted friend’ and reflects the role of the guides as the key first point of contact for the centre’s clients.

The Ruah Centre is the first facility of its kind in Western Australia to provide crisis accommodation and access to holistic, life-changing services in one location.

Koorta Guides will help clients connect with services they need, including healthcare, child protection, income support and housing.

Shooting Stars is an education engagement program empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women to make informed choices about their education and employment journey.  

Operating in 22 schools across metro, regional and remote Western and South Australia, the program is supporting over 1,200 participants to strengthen their confidence and cultural identity while cultivating positive attitudes towards school.  

In May 2022, MinRes expanded their long-standing partnership with Shooting Stars by becoming the principal partner of Shooting Stars’ Deadly Minds Matter program.  

This program supports participants with developing emotional wellbeing skills and preventative mental health strategies, so that they can adapt to life’s challenges as they grow. 

Starlight Children’s Foundation aims to brighten the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and young people.

In 2023, MinRes and Starlight celebrated 10 years of a valued partnership that has helped grant more than 230 Starlight Wishes to sick kids across WA.

In addition to financial support, MinRes backs in the mental health of Starlight’s superhero performers who bring happiness to kids in hospital and at home – each known as Captain Starlight.

Every quarter, MinRes is proud to host Starlight’s Captain Connection Training program at our headquarters.

The Swans Districts Football Club (SDFC) operates a community branch which focuses on improving the lives of the people in the community through creating greater engagement in education and transitions to employment, improving health and well-being and enhancing community connections.  

In July 2023, we announced our new partnership with SDFC to create more opportunities for young people in Onslow to thrive.  

The three-year partnership will strengthen SDFC’s Swans in Onslow program (formally, VSwans), which focuses on improving the lives of young people and their families by supporting personal growth, facilitating meaningful connections and helping reduce the likelihood of at-risk behaviours.  

In October 2021, MinRes announced it was extending its support of Telethon with a $10 million commitment over the following five years.

This donation allows MinRes to support a range of worthy beneficiaries, including:

Wheels For Hope

A WA charity changing the lives of people living with disability by giving them wheelchair accessible vehicles on a loan basis.

With MinRes’ support, Wheels for Hope has granted the gift of mobility to more than 40 WA families over the past year.

The Waalitj Foundation aims to lead the provision of education, employment and business opportunities for First Nations Peoples.  

They influence and inspire the empowerment of First Nations Peoples through their diverse workforce, led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander role models.  

In 2023, we signed a three-year partnership with the Waalitj Foundation to bolster the Foundation’s Onslow Family Support program. The program aims to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal families in Onslow and overcome barriers to school attendance.  

Local mentors deliver the program, which includes a school pick-up and drop-off service, engagement with teachers and workshop activities specifically targeted to the needs of students.
